Blueberry-Raspberry Microgreen Smoothie


 Microgreens come in a wide variety of textures, flavors, and colors. A few varieties available at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market include: sunflower, pea, mustard, cress, broccoli, kale, and radish. Sunflower microgreens have a mild, nutty flavor and crunchy texture whereas pea microgreens are sweeter in flavor and tender in texture. Mustard and cress both have a spicier flavor. Broccoli microgreens have dark green leaves and a mild broccoli flavor. The radish microgreens are red and green in color, taste mildly of radish, and have a slight crunch. Kale has a flavor that resembles lettuce and is light green in color.
Blueberry - Raspberry Smoothie
Microgreens are packed with nutrients. People wanting to improve their health and wellness through nutrition are sneaking microgreens in their smoothies, piling them on sandwiches, and mixing them into salads. This week’s recipe is a blueberry-raspberry microgreen smoothie. You can find most of the ingredients for the recipe at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market.

 INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup ice if using fresh berries
  • 1 cup any milk or other liquid
  • 1/4 cup microgreens of your choice (sunflower, pea, kale or broccoli microgreens taste great in smoothies.)
  • 1 Tbs. honey, if desired
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

 PREPARATION

The first step in making this smoothie will be to add the liquid base of milk, water, or other preferred liquid. With the liquid as the bottom layer, this allows the blender to easily pull down the top layers.  Add the honey and vanilla extract immediately after the liquid base. Next up, bring on the microgreens. Keeping the microgreens at the bottom of the blender is a smart way to make sure they are blended well.  Following this step, drop in the blueberries and raspberries. Finally, top off the blender with the ice. The weight of the heavier top layers will help push the ingredients down towards the base. Blend until desired consistency and serve.
